In Memoriam: Rev. Peter Y. De Jong

by
Louis M. Tamminga
January 18, 2011
Author of Reviewed Item:
1915 – 2005
As Hurricane Katrina struck the Gulf Coast of the United States, Peter Ymen De Jong was translated to glory following apparent heart failure.
De Jong, 90, was born into a pastor’s family in Grand Rapids, Mich., in 1915. He attended Grand Rapids Christian High School and studied at Calvin College and Seminary, graduating from the latter in 1939. That same year he enrolled at Hartford Theological Seminary, earning a Ph.D. in 1942. He and Joanne H. Heyns married in 1940.
While at Hartford he served the Preakness Christian Reformed Church and was ordained to the CRC ministry in 1940. In later years he served in many ministries: Alpine Avenue CRC, Grand Rapids, Mich. (1942); Oakdale Park CRC, Grand Rapids, (1948); missionary for the CRC to South India (1952); First CRC, Pella, Iowa (1953); First CRC, Hamilton, Ontario (1960); Alger Park CRC, Grand Rapids (1963); professor of pastoral theology at Calvin Thelogical Seminary (1964); First CRC, Sioux Center, Iowa (1970); and First CRC, Sheldon, Iowa (1976). He retired in 1980. In 1982 he affiliated with the United Reformed Churches.
De Jong was as much a pastor and preacher as he was a scholar and teacher. He related with warmth and affection to his parishioners and his churches remember him as a caring shepherd. He was widely sought as a speaker at religious conferences and rallies and was a prolific writer of theological works, Bible studies, and articles for a variety of magazines. He was delegated to many CRC synods and served several as an officer. He was a man of firm convictions who had a deep appreciation for the Reformed faith.
De Jong is survived by his wife, Joanne, and their children James A. and Lois De Jong, Deanne and E. Robert Tigchelaar, Peter Y. and Charlotte De Jong, Stephen and Deanne De Jong, Corinne and James Hentges, and Christine and Dale Zylstra; 24 grandchildren, and 18 great-grandchildren.

On a glorious morning at Saratoga Race Course Aug. 28, an estimated crowd of 15,000 flocked to the track to watch Triple Crown winner American Pharoah in his final gallop before his bid in the following day's $1.6 million Travers Stakes.

The New York Racing Association opened its gates free of charge to allow fans to watch American Pharoah train during a special session reserved for Travers entrants.

In a scene reminiscent of an afternoon of racing, throngs of fans lined the rails of both the grandstand and clubhouse. The entire box section at the track was filled to capacity, and NYRA security personnel urged people to remove themselves from the aisles, which were quickly becoming congested.

In advance of American Pharoah's gallop, video of him winning the Kentucky Derby Presented by Yum! Brands, Preakness Stakes and Belmont Stakes presented by Draftkings were shown on the infield's big board.

Zayat Stables' homebred runner walked onto the main track at about 8:45 a.m. ET for a 1-1/2-mile gallop, under exercise rider Georgie Alvarez. As NYRA track announcer Larry Collmus announced the colt's presence on the track, people clapped, hooted, and called out his name. On the ground level of the clubhouse, people were standing on chairs to gain a better view of the Bob Baffert-trained colt, who passed by the stands two times before exiting the track.

Ann Wallace, a racing fan and a resident of Saratoga Springs, N.Y., has seats to the sold-out Travers, but said she was very eager to get a glimpse of the champion a day in advance of the big race.

"I feel this horse has brought an extraordinary surge of enthusiasm to horse racing," Wallace said. "Saratoga is such a beautiful jewel of a racetrack, and a wonderful place to share this horse with the public."

Jean Louise
You mean Kentucky, it really is The Run For The Roses! 100 Garlanded on the thoroughbred neck? The Derby. They do say Kentucky Bluegrass is the best. My hat to you..:The short breath will be at The Preakness and The long Stake at The Belmont. But remember when they want to do The Saratoga on you that was first run in Mexico not FL.. Don't forget everything is weighted in a saddled BAG to break the horses legs right out of the starting gate. You'll have to get your bookies too. So that you can have Religion maiden between your legs it used to be called church property to the progressive State now in arrears.
